Mt. Bachelor is alive and well as the season commences

Another Bachelor opening day is in the books and this one sure did not fail to deliver.  With enough snow over the prior week and night before we even had the great privilege of riding a bit of pow. 

If you really wanted it, you got it.  With close to a 3-foot base the terrain has some nice coverage and those opening day lines you look forward to every year are almost all dialed.

Terrain Park manager Hames Ellerbe has been up at the mountain all day and night making sure you have one of the best parks in the NW. There are 30-plus features for you to get your early season park laps on. 

Stay tuned for weekly updates from Bachelor and the NW as we enter another epic season.
